One of the best reasons why Mr. Morris should be elected to proside ovor the courts of this tho 2'2d district, is that the office sought the man, instead of the man eeeking tho office. The caudidacy camc to him froiu the bar of Monroe county unasked, and was not favorably eonsidered by him when the nomination was first broached. lts younger metobers owe him many obligations for advice. No lawyer of that csonnty has dotio so muüh to encourage attorneys beginning the practioe of law. Mr. Morris is a gradúate of IXirttuouth College, and papsed the regular course of tho law department in Yale College. He ciitne to Michigan in 1840 and settlud on a farm in Monroe County, whore he resided until 1805. In that yoar he moved to the city of Monroe, where he opened a law offiue. A large practice promptly followed, which he has retained to this day. The tnanner of receiving the nomination, his long experience in the profcssion, and his unquestioned capacity to creditably fill tho position, ought to be sufficient to make his elcctiou sure.
